A team of alternative transport and environmental groups – including GOOD, railLA, Los Angeles County Bicycle Coalition, Coalition for Clean Air and de LAB – are joining forces to throw a car-free celebration in downtown L.A. tonight called Moving Beyond Cars.
From the promoters:
Board a bus, take the train, ride a bike, map out a walk, jump on your scooter, hire a horse and buggy, break out your hoverboard … just get here in a way that illustrates an L.A. that’s not auto-dependent. Connect with friends and travel together. Document your trip on Twitter, Flickr or Facebook using the tag #LAbeyondcars. When you get to the event, we’ll have an opportunity for everyone to record how they got there, where they came from, and what happened during their journey. James Rojas will be holding his extremely fun interactive city planning workshops focusing on walking and biking. The folks from CicLAvia will be on-hand to talk about how they’re planning a car-free street celebration this fall. Plus: There will be prizes awarded for the people who arrive in the most unique, alternative, or “beyond car” ways. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
